The Triduum Begins

The Triduum begins on the evening of Holy Thursday with the beautiful, solemn Mass that commemorates the Last Supper where Christ gave us His Body and Blood for all time.
Mass begins in the evening light and concludes in the darkness.
The Easter Vigil Mass will begin in the darkness and conclude as the morning light breaks.

The beautiful altar of moments before is stripped; the Lord's Passion has begun. Mass is followed by a Eucharistic Vigil to accompany Jesus during His agony in the Garden of Gethsemane.

 Living the Triduum with Jesus

Two simple ways to help you live these days more fully.

1. To the degree that you are able, try to unite yourself with Jesus during these days.
And when the obligations of your life interfere with your desire to live these days, 
do your best to unite your human work to the Work that Jesus did during those Holy Days. His was the Work of Love, in which ALL is given, for the sake of drawing all to the Heart of the Father, which has been so wounded by the lack of love and faith of His Children. Offer and unite everything to Jesus for the accomplishment of His Plans. 

In this way you will live these days, the days of the Triduum, in a more profound union with Jesus than would seem apparent by the external work that you do.

2. To nourish yourself spiritually for the work of these days, read the Gospel of John, chapters 14 through 17. Meditate on Jesus' words at the Last Supper and the words of His prayer to His Father. Read them slowly, perhaps just a few paragraphs at a time and allow Jesus to reveal His Heart to you through these Sacred Words.
Let His words sink into the depths of your heart as a balm, as hope, as the assurance of your union with Him and His everlasting love for you.

Experience these Sacred Words as an expression of the Love of the Trinity for all God's children throughout time, but spoken in a special way for NOW and for YOU.


Unite yourself with Christ as He goes to His Passion, and feed yourself with His Word. May you experience a Triduum that draws you more deeply into the Heart of the Trinity and sustains you in the times to come.

Parking for the Way of the Cross on Good Friday will be in the parking field used when Mass is on Tepeyac.  This is to keep traffic and noise away from the WotC. Golf carts will be available to transport people from the parking field.
Please reserve the golf carts for those who are not able to walk that distance.
Consider this sacrifice as  part of YOUR Way of the Cross.




The Divine Mercy Novena begins tomorrow, Good Friday, continues through Easter Week, and concludes on the Saturday before Divine Mercy Sunday.  To assist you, we will be sending out a daily email with that day's Novena prayer and intention.
